Animal anniversary

A Willenhall couple celebrated their twentieth wedding anniversary with a Keeper for a Day experience at DZG.

Forgoing the traditional anniversary gift of china, Andy and Ruth Ward opted to feed Humboldt penguins, big cats and monkeys instead!


Ruth, said: “I researched extensively for the best experience with the most animals and for a reasonable price and Dudley Zoo came out the best by far.

‘’I booked it up for Andy but then couldn’t resist adding myself as well!

“We both loved the actual feeding of the animals and learning about them in more detail. I loved the lemurs and the penguins as the experience was very ‘hands on’ and Andy enjoyed feeding the tigers and especially loved the birds of prey.

“We were both overwhelmed by the hospitality of the zoo keepers that we met and their genuine love and care for their animals. Their enthusiasm genuinely made our day.”
